Emperor Arcann, The Scorned Son, Conqueror of the Galaxy
"Destiny is a lie. Fate is the falsest of hopes. I am beyond prophecy."
This is an updated and expanded version of @DarthAnt66 respect thread from Comic Vine, so give him credit where credit is due. A few things to note before we get started:
1. The asterisks mark the things that I have personally added to the original post and the things without asterisks are what Ant wrote.
2. LS and DS represent light side and dark side story choices respectively.
3. Feats, fights, and accolades are listed in reverse chronological order, so keep that in mind while reading.
4. It is generally accepted that "the Outlander" playable class from the Knights of the Fallen Empire and Knights of the Eternal Throne expansions for Star Wars: The Old Republic is the Hero of Tython (i.e. the Jedi Knight class), who per the promotional content for the expansions is a human male.
Satele Shan and Darth Marr believed that much of Arcann's power was due to his approach at handling, mastering, and using the Force. They believed that, because of this, no Jedi or Sith could defeat him, and rather the Outlander would have to expand his horizon's to truly topple the Eternal Throne.
The Outlander once admitted that Arcann was almost invincible compared to him.
Senya was far weaker than Arcann, Vaylin, and Thexan combined, even when they were children.
Lana Beniko claimed Arcann most likely only ever feared to confront his father, Emperor Valkorion. Senya also believed that Arcann may humble the Outlander.
Emperor Valkorion has constantly praised Arcann's power. The authenticity of these statements, however, is in question, since they may have been said to trick the Outlander into becoming his pawn.
The Outlander sensed and praised Arcann's strong connection to the Force.
*Arcann telepathically projected himself into the Outlander's mind with the assistance of Valkorion's Holocron, where he helped defeat Valkorion in a battle of wills alongside the Outlander, Senya, and Vaylin, finally ending The Immortal Emperor's reign of terror.
*Arcann assisted the Outlander along with Senya against Vaylin and her Horizon Guard's after the removal of her conditioning, with the team emerging victorious. It can be seen in the Outlander's memories that Arcann took on two Horizon Guard during the fight, Force Pushing one down.
*Arcann engaged in a prolonged duel with Vaylin who was capable of dominating a KotET:III Outlander. Arcann can be seen hurling and deflecting Force Blasts as well as exchanging lightsaber blows with Vaylin over the course of the fight. The fight ends with Vaylin staggering backward and the arrival of the Outlander, which causes her to flee. In her escape, Vaylin throws a speeder at Arcann which briefly incapacitates him without injury.
In the third confrontation between Arcann and the Outlander, the Commander showcased a slight edge over his adversary. Following his last defeat, the Outlander had grown in power considerably, now being imbued with a portion of Emperor Valkorion's power. The Outlander also wielded a lightsaber that contained the joint ideals of Darth Marr and Satele Shan. The fight began with Arcann forcing the Outlander on his knees with telekinesis, but the Commander used his newfound power to fend off Arcann's lightsaber strikes with his bare hands. A duel ensured and they fought as relative equals, but the capital ship they fought on began to suffer heavy bombardment. With Arcann being thrown off balance by the swaying ship, the Commander seized the advantage, injured Arcann, and considered his next move.
In the situation where the Outlander decided to kill his opponent, Arcann hurled broken machinery at the Commander. The Outlander managed to pull through it and then proceeded to best Arcann in a quick and brutal exchange of lightsaber combat. If the Outlander extended his hand and offered surrender, Arcann would attack the Commander, resulting in a fierce duel that also ended in Arcann's defeat.
In the second confrontation between Arcann and the Outlander, Arcann showcased his complete superiority over his adversary. The fight began with Arcann dominating the Outlander with telekinesis, but a duel ensured and they fought as relative equals. Arcann managed to get the upper hand by a swift push with the Force, and then summoned his power to destroy his bested foe. The assassin droid HK-55, the Commander's companion, jumped in front of the blast, sacrificing his life in the process. Visibly enraged, the Commander resumed the fight, but Emperor Valkorion appeared before the Outlander and claimed that he was outmatched, and thus must use the entity's power if he wished to defeat Arcann.
In the situation where the Outlander accepts the offer of power, the weakened Emperor Valkorion temporarily took control over his body and overpowered Arcann after a fierce standoff. If the Commander refused, Arcann then immediately impaled him with his lightsaber and left him for dead. Either way, the injuries sustained in the battle left the Outlander unconscious for two days before finally recovering.
In the first confrontation between Arcann and the Outlander, Arcann showcased a slight edge over his adversary. The fight began with Arcann dominating the Outlander with telekinesis, but a duel ensured and they fought as relative equals. The fight may have continued if not for a massive pillar collapsing on Arcann due to a nearby explosion. Arcann was believed killed, but managed to pull himself from the rubble.
Arcann defeated the powerful Heskal and four Force-sensitive Scions. Heskal was capable of easily dismissing Senya and challenged the Outlander to a difficult battle.
Arcann slew his twin brother Thexan in a fit of rage after a short duel in an act that was considered "murder" by many, including his sister Vaylin and mother Senya. Nevertheless, Emperor Valkorion was seemingly impressed by Arcann's actions, extending his hand after the fight.
Arcann dominated and vanquished Darth Atroxa, the most powerful Sith on Korriban, and four or more of her Sith Warriors. This was after him and his forces successfully defeated armies of other Sith.

...Most of the feats and details in our threads are identical. The only differences are my use of scaling whereas Praxis found more feats I didn't think of or didn't think were especially applicable (e.g. his death explosion). Also, since it was my first RT the formatting is shite.IG (Exists) wrote:Lot better than BOD’s tbh.

I'm also making a comprehensive Respect Thread for the entire Eternal Empire so this is just a part of that. I'm gonna be releasing everything in parts as I complete stuff and then compile all of it at the end in its own thread.
